"[...] such an absolute overload of killer riffs it would have made Dave Mustaine piss his pants of jealousy in 1984!"
Four influental Metal musicians reviewed REZET's new EP "You Asked For It": DESTRUCTION's front beast "Schmier", ANVIL's drum icon "Robb Reiner", ENFORCER's singer/guitar maniac "Olof" and GAMA BOMB's bass nerd "Joe". Scroll down to all four quotes!
"REZET are the breed of the young savages. They are among the ones that hopefully will pursue the legacy of Thrash Metal in the future. Their new EP is faster and heavier than their older material and reminds me of the 80s American Speed Metal, some HALLOWS EVE riffs are blasting with doses of thrash and are blending into an own style of extreme music. Well done boys. The Dead Kennedys cover fits excellent into the album and is sure a highlight - there would be no Thrash without the good old Punk Rock. If you like it raw, wild, relentless & uncommercial, then you have to check out those German lunatics! Support the underground and the forthcoming rocketeers!!"
- Schmier (DESTRUCTION)
"REZET with current offering deliver youthful energy in the spirit of early Megadeth-style Thrash Metal, sounding tight, direct and honest to the craft...nice job boys!!"
- Robb Reiner (ANVIL)
"'You Asked For It' is such an absolute overload of killer riffs it would have made Dave Mustaine piss his pants of jealousy in 1984. This EP contains a bunch of thrash anthems catchier than any band of the old guard accomplished to make in decades."
- Olof Wikstrand (ENFORCER)
"Ass kicking full speed Teutonic Thrash in the tradition of Tankard + Kreator. Vocals and guitars have a real Megadeth snarl!"
- Joe McGuigan (GAMA BOMB)

More informations and inquieries at the official Facebook event!
as a Band coming from Northern Germany we felt the urge to write these lines to all of you - worldwide - out there. It's hard to summarize the hate and disbelief we feel right now. Hamburg's the city REZET has played the most shows ever so far, so we know almost every little spot of that beautiful place that is a bit more than 100km to the south of us. Plus: at moment we write this, we just finished the recordings of our upcoming EP in Hamburg.
World's leaders are gathering there and pretending to change the world into something better. They always have and always will, as long as we follow them. Too many facts make the current situation a smack in the face:
Why one of the biggest cities of the country? Why not somewhere at the countryside? Makes us think about a planned act in the first place.
Police brutality. We're witnessing cops beating the hell out of people. Mostly young, peaceful protesting men, women and teenies.
Protesters' brutality. There are people who use events like that to bring action into their boring lives. Cars, houses and existences of innocent families are going up in flames. You don't fight capitalism like that!
Understand that also Germany is a police state. Understand that maybe these actions were planned to go that way.
But don't give them the chance to blame you, to blame us. The ones that try something to change. Violence will always be the language of the weak.
And most of all, remember the innocent men, women and children who are suffering states like that EVERYDAY since their birth and maybe until the day they die. Now imagine living in places like these. Don't suppress them to pack their stuff (if they have any left) and flee to a uncertain, maybe better world...
Make love, not war.
Ricky, Bastian, Lucas & Bjarne
